Craig Oliver 1.0

Hip-hop headphones, an iPad, no cufflinks, an off the peg suit and a manbag was enough to drive Westminster villagers into an in-depth discussion about Dave’s new comms chief Craig Oliver and his modern metro style. But have they all been spun a yarn?

On the first day Oliver, who left the BBC with not love lost apparently, was dressed up like a truly modern gadget man, yet by his second day he looked a little more like someone going to steer the entire government communications machine. Where were the glasses and notebooks before? Surely Guido is being too cynical to think, as others have suggested, that it was all for show?
